Hundreds of Hands™ (HOH) Mosaic Mural Project in American Canyon
Over the years we have nurtured our relationships with schools and community groups throughout the Napa Valley, with the goal of expanding our work to serve all
of Napa County. Recently, we’ve deepened our relationship to schools, Boys and Girls Clubs, and the Arts Foundation in American Canyon, and we’re thrilled to be
providing after-school arts programs during the school year at two American Canyon public schools, Napa Junction and Donaldson Way.
In the fall 2018, we launched our sixth Hundreds of Hands™ (HOH) mosaic mural project through a Napa Valley Arts Council grant and community funding through the American Canyon Arts Foundation. This project is unique; it’s a “hand off” where our partner takes the responsibility to manage and guide the project to completion. This represents the achievement of a longtime goal for Nimbus Arts and our HOH initiative; teaching and transferring our HOH community-building and art-making model to other organizations to implement, in and for their communities!
We are thrilled to see our goal for this project come to life in partnership with the American Canyon Arts Foundation and Boys and Girls Club. This special mosaic mural is being created by the entire community and will adorn the entry walls of the American Canyon Boys and Girls Club’s new building. Designed by Anne Pentland, this mural expresses a range of ideas, celebrating south Napa’s beauty and the diversity of its residents, landscape, and wildlife. We are so excited for this opportunity to expand our HOH program and engage new hands!
